Music Review: Joshua Bell, At Home with Friends

As a member of the One2One Network, I get the opportunity to hear some of the most amazing musicians that I might not otherwise go out and purchase. Joshua Bell is one of those musicians! His recent album, At Home With Friends, is a masterful album that truly feels like you are sitting in a friends home listening to the piano being played. I highlighted my favorite tracks from the album below, but as you can see, there are some amazing musicians on this album with Joshua Bell. At Home With Friends covers all of the genres, from classical to pop, bluegrass to Broadway, jazz and ethnic World Music. There are even a couple of seasonal tracks in there, just in time to celebrate the holidays.

Here's a listing of the album tracks:
I Loves You Porgy featuring Chris Botti, trumpet
Come Again featuring Sting, vocals
Oblivion featuring Carel Kraayenhof, bandoneon
Cinema Paradiso featuring Josh Groban, vocals
Para featuring Tiempo Libre, various
My Funny Valentine featuring Kristin Chenoweth, vocals
Maybe So featuring Edgar Meyer Sam Bush and Mike Marshall, strings
Grieg: Sonata No. 3 featuring Sergei Rachmaninoff (Zenph re-performance)
Eleanor Rigby featuring Frankie Moreno, piano & vocals
O, Cease Thy Maiden Fair featuring Nathan Gunn, baritone
Il Postino featuring Carel Kraayenhof, bandoneon
Left Hand Song featuring Regina Spektor, piano & vocals
Chovendo Na Roseira featuring Dave Grusin, piano
Look Away featuring Edgar Meyer, bass and Chris Thile, mandolin
Variant Moods: Duet for Sitar & Violin featuring Anoushka Shankar, sitar
I'll Take Manhattan featuring Marvin Hamlisch, piano
Left Hand featuring Regina Spektor, vocals

Whether you love classical music, or are just looking for a new CD to sit back and relax, this might just be the perfect CD for you! The CD was released in stores on September 29, so it might just be the perfect gift for someone this holiday season (if you think they can wait that long to own it)! Thanks to One2One Network for providing the opportunity to review this CD. Although the CD was provided, the thoughts and views are completely honest!
